As July comes to a close we are entering the dog days of summer for the MLB DFS analysts. The only chance in the overall leaderboards came from RotoGrinders Consensus which moved into the third spot on the pitching standings to put them in the Top 3 for pitching and hitting along with DailyFantasySportsRankings.

Check out the top experts on the Overall Leaderboard and as always you can check out the full MLB Expert Standings to make sure that you’re up to speed on who is making the grade. Also, review how all the MLB DFS analysts fared this past week with a day-by-day breakdown of each scored and ranking for the day and the week. I will also post the Ownership Percentages by position by count which are used to help project player ownership in our Weighted Consensus article every day.
